Bert shows how he recreated Toys "R" Us Display for his Times Square masterpiece

In the last installment in the studio, Bert focuses on techniques he has and will use for his latest giant project, Times Square, NYC.

Bert sheds light on how he will recreate the Toys "R" Us display in Times Square, specifically the Shark Tale video box and Shrek head.

Bert starts created Shrek's face by first tracing the face with paths, filling in the paths with colors, creating a guide layer, and adding stroke layer effect. Bert simply uses the dodge/burn/saturation tool for texture and tones, and adds the texturizer filter and more to recreate the popular computer-animated character.

For Shrek's eye, check out the evil eye episode.
